  • John Holt - Help Me Make It Through the Night

    3:07

    Official audio for John Holt's seminal reggae version of Kris Kristoffersson's 'Help Me Make It Through The Night'

    Written and originally recorded by Kris Kristofferson, ‘Help Me Make It Through The Night’ first appeared on the celebrated singer-songwriter’s his 1970 album, ‘Kristofferson’, before being covered soon after by Sammi Smith, whose version ranks among the most successful country singles of all time, topping the country singles chart, and reaching number 8 on the US pop chart.

    Later renderings of the song, included versions by Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn, Glen Campbell, Joan Baez, Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley, Joe Simon, Joey Sontz, Ray Stevens, and Willie Nelson, although the first interpretation to chart in the UK was performed by Gladys Knight & the Pip, with the r&b group reaching Number 11 on 20 January 1973 with the composition. It was this version that inspired former Paragons singer John Holt to rework the number in a reggae style. Produced by UK-based sound system operator, Tony Ashfield, the recording’s backing track was cut at Byron Lee’s Dynamic Sounds studio in Kingston, Jamaica, with vocal parts and orchestration later added in London.

    Holt’s cut first featured on the singer’s best-selling Trojan LP, ‘One Thousand Volts Of Holt’ (aka ‘1000 Volts Of Holt’) from 1973 – a collection that followed soon after the singer’s initial album collaboration with Ashfield, ‘The Further You Look’.

    Early the following year, Trojan issued Holt’s rendition on a 7” single, but it was not to be until 14 December of that year that it finally entered the British pop chart. The disc eventually climbed to Number 6 on 26 January 1975, making it the UK’s highest charting version of the song.

    HELP ME MAKE IT THROUGH THE NIGHT
    Written by Kris Kristoffersson

    Take the ribbon from your hair
    Shake it loose and let it fall
    Laying soft upon my skin
    Like the shadows on the wall

    Come and lay down by my side
    Till the early morning light
    All I'm takin' is your time
    Help me make it through the night

    I don't care who's right or wrong
    I don't try to understand
    Let the devil take tomorrow
    Lord tonight I need a friend

    Yesterday is dead and gone
    And tomorrow's out of sight
    And it's sad to be alone
    Help me make it through the night

    Official audio for John Holt's 1969 boss reggae flight of fancy. Ali Baba'.

    John Holt's fantasy-filled boss reggae classic from 1969, produced by Arthur 'Duke' Reid and released by Trojan Records in the UK. As featured in the acclaimed documentary, 'Rudeboy. The Story of Trojan Records'.

    After making his recording debut as a solo artist in 1963, John Holt led the Paragons
    onto becoming one Jamaica’s leading vocal group with their hits including ‘Only A Smile’, ‘On The Beach’ and the original version of ‘The Tide Is High’ – an international Number One hit for Blondie in 1980.

    After the Paragons disbanded, Holt promptly became one of reggae’s most popular solo acts, with one of his solo successes being this self-penned number, which quickly became a boss reggae classic!

    ALI BABA LYRICS
    Written by John Holt
    Published by Sparta Florida Music Group Ltd.

    My dream last night was about Ali Baba
    With the forty thieves
    Tom, Tom, the piper's son
    He was there with me
    I rode through the valley
    With a princess by my side
    The duke and the duchess
    Was there to meet me with a smile

    Alice was there in Wonderland
    Staring far away
    The three blind mice was there with me
    To tell the Teddy bear the tale
    The Teddy bear came smiling there
    With a big smile
    The Little Bo-Peep
    Has lost a sheep last night

    I dreamed last night about Ali Baba
    With the forty thieves
    Tom, Tom, the piper's son
    He was there with me
    I rode through the valley
    With the princess by my side
    The duke and the duchess
    Did the reggae, reggae, reggae last night

    My dream last night was about Ali Baba
    With the forty thieves
    Tom, Tom, the piper's son
    He was there with me
    I rode through the valley
    With the princess by my side
    I did the reggae, reggae last night
    With a princess my, my bride

    The duke and the duchess
    Was there with me
    To meet me with a smile
    Alice was there in Wonderland
    Staring far away
    I did the reggae, reggae, reggae, reggae, reggae, reggae last night
    Do the reggae, reggae, reggae, reggae, reggae, reggae last night

    John Holt - Help Me Make It Through The Night

    John Holt (born John Kenneth Holt, 11 July 1947, Kingston, Jamaica) is a reggae singer and songwriter.

    The success of the string-laden reggae led to Trojan Records issuing a series of similarly arranged albums produced by Bunny Lee starting with the 1,000 Volts of Holt in 1973, a compilation of Holt's reggae cover versions of popular hits (and later followed by similarly named releases up to 3,000 Volts of Holt). 1,000 Volts spawned the UK Top 10 hit. Help Me Make It Through the Night (written by Kris Kristofferson) peaked at number 6.

    Sweetie, Sweetie, Sweetie, Sweetie

    There's a girl -- living in my neighborhood
    She's so beautiful -- they call her Sweetie
    When she walks -- in the neighborhood
    Everybody turn and stare - looking at Sweetie

    Sweetie, come kiss me - girl
    Sweetie, come hold me
    Sweetie, come shake for me -- girl

    Every time -- that she pass my way
    My heart - skips a beat -- and I have got to say
    (bayoi)
    Sweetie, come bounce with me
    Sweetie, come dance with me -- girl
    Sweetie, come kiss me
    Sweetie, come shake for me -- girl

    There's a girl -- living in my neighborhood
    She's so beautiful -- they call her Sweetie
    When she walks -- in the neighborhood

    So I say --

    Sweetie, come bounce with me
    Sweetie, come shake for me - girl
    Sweetie, come hold me
    Sweetie, come kiss me -- girl

    There's a girl -- living in my neighborhood
    She's so beautiful -- they call her Sweetie
    She's like fire -- burning in my soul
    I want to talk to her -- Oh come on, Sweetie
    (mmm)
